RTA Investment to Date
Delivering our promise to you
A new, 20-year regional transportation plan will infuse another $2.3 billion into transportation improvements across the region to meet the demands of our changing demographics. A voter-approved investment of flexible RTA funding will help create a safer, more reliable transportation system to improve regional mobility and accessibility, and to drive economic benefits such as business development and expansion, and new jobs.
RTA members include Pima County, the Cities of Tucson and South Tucson, the Towns of Marana, Oro Valley and Sahuarita, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, the Tohono O'odham Nation and the Arizona Department of Transportation. RTA members take the lead on scheduling, managing and building RTA plan projects throughout the region. The RTA manages the voter-approved plan and RTA revenue fund payments to members as they complete projects.
